Full of personal stories about life with celiac disease and fibromyalgia; gluten free, vegan and paleo recipes; and product and restaurant reviews.
Plus, reflects on body image, dating and more with a chronic illness!
Let’s just say you met someone you wanted to date; maybe they even knocked your socks off.
And let’s just say that said person, at some point, told you there could be no kissing unless you brushed your teeth, flossed, and then rinsed with mouthwash. But now I am that person, the one who cannot be kissed unless the above-mentioned “kissing prescription” is followed to the letter of the law.
(I’ve since been counseled by my friends and daughters to only meet for coffee or a drink on the first date.) There was gluten involved (on his part), and when we walked out of the restaurant, I prayed that he wouldn’t try to kiss me—in part because of the gluten issue, but also because he was a total loser. Then I was introduced to someone through mutual friends.Instead, I give a sisterly hug intended to communicate that kissing won’t be an option.All of that so I don’t have to deal with the kissing prescription head-on. I recently had a wonderful discussion with him about honesty and being able to walk in your power without being afraid of being judged. And we weren’t even talking about kissing or anything in the neighborhood of physical intimacy—just about speaking your truth."Celiac" for people living in the US and "coeliac" for our European counterparts. My friends always joke that dating in college is like adding another 6 unit class.With a celiac girlfriend, I'd bump that up another 2.
